The Lancashire Lass

The Watershed Festival is proud to present the next step on the road to its first commissioned world-premiere. The Pandemic has been a challenging time to try and develop new creations but Canadian composer-lyricist and the DAN School of Drama and Music have been hard at work on our new musical The Lancashire Lass.

First seen in sneak peak form at the 2021 festival, we would like to welcome you to a public workshop presentation of the entire musical at Kingston Grand Theatre followed by a feedback session with the creative team.

he new musical tells the tumultuous story of the British suffragette movement through the eyes of the dynamic yet conflicted Annie Kenney. It is the sweeping and poignant exploration of a century-old struggle that still has such a massive impact on the world today. Directed by Tim Fort with music direction by Darrell Christie, The Lancashire Lass features current students of the DAN School of Drama and Music as well as outstanding professionals (and alumni!).
